A dark ale brewed with Chocolate and Crystal malts, with Styrian, Goldings and Fuggles hops. Fuggles are used early in the boil with Styrian late hopped. The British cask version of this beer is 4.5% while export bottles sent to the USA are a mere 3.5% so obviously affecting flavour and style. Read more
